Friday February 27th, 2009 /
73rd & Broadway New York City


Room 1603. I arrive at 9 a.m. from Manchester on U.S Airways Flight 4671. There are only 4 people on the flight coming from New Hampshire to Manhattan.

Lucie opens the door to this Upper West Hotel/ apartment she found on the internet in France. She has prepared a French breakfast for her boys Jules and Melchiore and has added American pancakes for me on the griddle. New York City is vertical and we are on the 16th floor. Gorgeous, grey spring light pours in and this scene from the window actually reminds me more of the rooftops of Paris than New York City.


Lucie and her boys are all three of them crammed into this room with one big bed and a kitcheonette. We head to the museum of Natural History the boys first choice and then later cross through Central Park to go see Bonnard’s work at The Metropolitan Museum of Art


We have a picnic of bread, tomatoes, cheese, salami and ham; no knives, no butter right there in the park. Perfect really and just right. It was just what we all needed.

Hat store NYC1

On the way back to the Hotel I stop at Roslyn’s Hat Store. She has seen my illustrations for Irving Farm’s Café at 56 Seventh Avenue and wants to chat about a possible commission.
